Our volunteer driver service was established to support patients travelling to and from chemotherapy appointments who have no access to their own transport. We currently have a team of drivers and owing to the demand for the service we are keen to extend the team. The service is very much appreciated by patients who value the support provided to enable them to travel to their appointments.
The opportunity happens at Laurel House, Antrim Area Hospital. Car parking is available on site and travel expenses are provided for trips which you make to bring patients to and from appointments.
A volunteer driver should enjoy driving and have a clean driving license but all enquiries will be deal with on an individual basis. The driver’s car should be fully insured, taxed and roadworthy. He or she should enjoy the company of people and be able to show sensitivity to those requiring chemotherapy. The volunteer must be respectful in their interactions with people and be aware of the need for sensitivity in relation to client confidentiality. Volunteers should be willing to attend NHSCT training.
